I am having quit the mediocre start to 2013; it's quite frustrating. There is some money to be made, but these days it seems to be more about just treading water as opposed to riding any waves. Personally, I can only speak for the state of playing poker in the US.
We can't play poker online, I thought this was Americuh!?!? It is kind of magical though that the first hand of legal online poker was dealt yesterday in Nevada. Keep the dream alive.
